“Bursting Star Quilt”
November 2012
36″ x 36″
Machine pieced
Home machine quilted (FMQ) by myself
Home Machine Quilted Quilts category

It’s the first time I participate in the festival. We are allowed to submit two quilts. For my second one, I decided to add my Bursting Star quilt to the Home Machine Quilted Quilts category. I did this quilt with half-square triangles leftover from other projects. If you want to know a little more about this quilt, read these posts: here, here and here.

I decided to submit a quilt in the quilting category because this is a part of quilt making I’m enjoying more and more. And it is something I want to continue to improve. I submitted this quilt because it is the quilting I did that I’m the most satisfied with up to now.

Below are some pictures I took while I was quilting it. I did a boxy allover design combined with some chain squares for the borders.

Here is a little close-up of the quilting after the quilt was washed.

I used some a bamboo/cotton blend batting and it felt so soft. I hope the little baby who got it feels that too!

    I am so glad you entered. This quilt is wonderful, and your quilting is perfect. I am always impressed with those who can quilt on a domestic sewing machine. I was never able to master that. This is so nice. So glad you entered.
